ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which examines the earthquakes distribution according to their type of motions in the Kuril-Okhotsk region in Russia and the mechanisms of earthquake sources. The study uses data from the GlobalCMT catalogue to analyze the earthquake epicenters and evaluates distribution using the three vertical projections of earthquake sources by the direction orthogonal to the Kuril-Kamchatka arc position. Result shows that earthquake sources mechanism are at depths of up to 80 kilometers (km) in the southeastern part of the regions considered close to ocean. The analysis of the epicenter locations normal to the seismic focal zone (SFZ) reveals three zones from east to west, to which faults are found.
